    For those of us that sometimes take an interest in matters beyond pondering why round pizzas are delivered in square boxes, it’s possible that some have become aware of the refugee crisis that is gathering pace in Europe. In this context and the context of world poverty, this video is worth watching. https://www.youtube.com/embed/LPjzfGChGlE

    The thing is that for every million that are allowed to immigrate legally, there are 3-4 million that come in illegally.

    Look at what is happening in Europe at the moment. These so called refugees are storming the frontiers of every nation in Europe to push themselves on the EU taxpayer. My question is how long can this be allowed to continue..
    On another hand The Greeks are being very innovative.

    Ah, remember the good â‚ǨÀúol days before regime change?Those days of wine & roses with Saddam and Gadhafi? Moreover, Al-Assad islooking pretty moderate these days too when compared to those cut-throats nowrunning riot. George Bush and Tony Blair should be indicted for war crimes andstand trial at The Hague.

    It’s the simple karma of arbitrarily creating states without respecting the history those people who have been living in the region for centuries, and continuing to destabilize the region by killing people that you want dead, but who are needed to keep the region functioning. They are streaming into Europe en masse because it is Europe that created the instability.

    By creating States, one cannot avoid thinking of Israeland perhaps a Zionist British army officer, with typical colonial arrogance,arbitrarily drawing lines on a map and saying, “Put â‚ǨÀúem there.” Thus, inbrevity, was Israel created in 1948. In mitigation, it is perhaps worthy ofmention that he and other brother officers had previously been occupied runningroughshod all over North Africa while chasing and defeating Rommel and his Nazicohorts. Back then the Middle East was much like Lawrence of Arabia had leftit; a ramshackle tribal mess.

    I agree 100%. Now, a century later, in the midst of the turmoil, Angela Merkel is pissing off tons of Germans because she basically told the media that Germany would take ALL of the asylum seekers who have been displaced by the mess that “the west” made! Germany has tried to take it back, but it is too late! Also, this will strengthen their relationship with the oil rich region so that they can rely less on Crazy-Russia for their oil supply. It is political “altruism” at its finest!

    Old hag Merkel precipitated this orgy of lawless migration and now she wants to spread the misery to the other EU members.
    The faster that the EU is broken up the better for the sovereign inhabitants of every country involved

    We don’t know her underlying political end-game in all this. But, I will bet it has something to do with creating political allies in the region so that Germany is less reliant on oil from Russia. Also, since they are coming anyway, it is better that they stay ahead of the game, rather than burying their heads in the sand!
